The Ultimate Sports Roundup: MLB Playoffs, NRL & NRLW Grand Finals, AFL Commission, Ange Postecoglou & more – Sportzfan Radio #492

The Professor and the panel of the Judge, Dan Butterly, Paul Dalligan and the Gelding discuss the MLB playoff picture and who will win through to the Championship series. Paul Dalligan reviews the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals. The Judge looks at the AFL Commission and Chairman and says it’s time for a change. The Judge talks up the prospects of Tottenham Hotspur under Ange Postecoglou in the Premier League with their best start to a season since 1980. The Panel talks about the relevance of the Rugby World Cup and One day Cricket World Cup and the Gelding gives his tips for today’s Bendigo race meeting.

The Professor’s rant #1

ChipperPoor form by Braves players who refused to catch the ceremonial first pitch from Chipper Jones. By the way Chipper just happened to play 19 seasons with the Braves, 8 time All Star, 1999 NL MVP, his number retired by the Braves and no doubt a first round Hall of Fame entrant when he is eligible.

The petulant players sent out the Brave’s mascot instead to catch the ball.

Chipper’s crime? His forecast to the media that he thought the Dodgers would beat the Braves 4-1 (which they did).

Me thinks the Braves as an organisation need to take a good hard look at themselves! A terrible way to treat a former champion.

Braves……you have struck out!
